Buy Ballads: Huge Giveaway/More Winners!

Buy Ballads Campaign:

From now, July 30, to August 31, you can win awesome prizes if you buy the book Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert. If you do, send a picture of you and the book or the receipt to here: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com and you will be entered.

Instead of one person getting all the prizes however we have decided to mix it up. We have a list from ten books sold to fifty or more sold...meaning:

-ten entries (one winner out of those)

-fifteen entries (one winner out of those, except if you already won)

And it continues on, so if you buy the book soon you get entered more, but if you win once you can't win again. If we don't get to at least fifty books, you may or may not get a shot to win the remaining prizes. We'll figure out that out later. If we don't reach that point, we MIGHT put all entries in and give someone the remaining prizes, but don't quote me. We'll see how it goes. So buy the book yourself, buy it for someone you know (holidays are fast approaching) or get people to buy it. You just might win.

Below are the prizes being donated and how many books that need to be sold before you can win well as who donated the prize. Thanks to all who can enter this contest too if you like! I won't because I'm putting it together and I don't want it to seem unfair, but everyone else CAN! This is an international contest so buy buy buy

No entry for me; I'm just dropping in to say hello and thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

Book stores and publishers should send you chocolates. Great idea for boosting sales and getting readers to dive into some wonderful summer reading.

Is this a continuation of Shelly's drive? Just curious, as I still haven't bought it and meant to ages ago! :)
